“It is to my great regret that I was told by Staffordshire Ambulance paramedics in 1999 that people would be far safer going to Burton than to Stafford hospital. When I made inquiries about that, I was just fobbed off like everyone else. What can the Secretary of State do now to reassure my constituents that Burton, Good Hope and other hospitals, as well as Stafford, are safe places to go to?A suitably long-winded reply came (which can be read along with the full exchange here), but it’s good to see Mr Fabricant putting forward the questions which are being asked by his constituents. And it’ll be interesting to see who exactly was responsible for people being ‘fobbed off’ when questions were asked.
